TRANSFER: Michael Doyle joins Notts County

31 January 2019

Coventry City can confirm that Captain Michael Doyle has left the Club to join League Two side Notts County.

The Midfielder made a total of 373 appearances for the Sky Blues, in two spells from 2003 to 2011 and from 2017 to the current day, putting him 7th in the all-time record appearance list alongside other club legends.

After re-joining the club from Portsmouth in Summer 2017, the 37-year-old Irishman played an integral role as he captained the Sky Blues to promotion from League Two last season.

Doyle made 76 appearances, scoring four times, in his second spell with the Sky Blues.

Manager Mark Robins paid tribute to the departing Doyle.

“Michael has been a key player for us since he re-joined the club in 2017.

“He has been a great example for our squad both on and off the field, was a huge part in our promotion to League One last season and an asset to the club as a whole.

“Michael has not featured for us in the last few months and at Michael’s stage of his career, he is understandably keen to play regular football and that opportunity has arisen at Notts County for him.

“On behalf of Coventry City Football Club, I would like to thank Michael for his contribution to the club over many years and wish him all the best for his future career.

"I look forward to working with him again in the future in a coaching capacity at the Club."
